For very a few decades, the idea driving super slight watches was focussed only on work of art, exquisite and smooth plans. Notwithstanding, Bulgari had something different as a top priority. Why not house these super slight developments inside an assortment of current and strong watches, motivated by the Italian sense for plan, or at the end of the day the symbol that is the Octo? This is the thing that the Bulgari Octo Finissimo Trilogy is: a notorious plan with record-breaking developments – with the most slender tourbillon development, the most slender minute repeater watch and the most slender automatic development ever (and surely more to come… ) And to us, this accomplishment merits a legitimate, top to bottom video.
With an ability in watchmaking acquired through the creation of in-house developments and, principally, the obtaining a couple of years prior of two Haute-Horlogerie fabricates (Daniel Roth and Gerald Genta), Bulgari began building up a progression of super flimsy developments. The first seemed like an impact in the watchmaking scene: the most slender tourbillon development at any point delivered , introduced in 2014. Figure that: 1.95mm in tallness, with a development comprising a flying tourbillon and near 250 sections. In general, a development that is more slender than a 5 Swiss Francs coin.
Later, seeing the premium of gatherers for such amazing watchmaking aptitude, Bulgari improved the Octo Finissimo assortment with two all the more new pieces: the most slender minute repeater watch and development ever (in a 6.85mm case, and with a 3.12mm thick movement) and the most slender automatic development at any point made (measuring just 2.23mm in height). This was for the specialized accomplishment. However, what might be said about the design?
Bulgari is additionally (maybe mainly) known for being perhaps the most trying brands regarding plan, with a solid connect to its underlying foundations: Italy. With such “record-breaking” developments and a name, for example, Bulgari engraved on the scaffolds, the brand needed to make something new, contemporary and intense. This is the place where the notorious “Octo” shape comes into the condition, to make the trilogy we know today… And in the event that you need to comprehend both the specialized and configuration measures, we currently give the floor to Guido Terreni (Managing Director of Bulgari Horlogerie SA) and Fabrizio Buonamassa Stigliani (Director of Bulgari Watches Design Center). Appreciate the movie!
